Labels and captions align to preset positions directly surrounding the front panel or block diagram object. Each object has three preset positions on each side. Labels for wires do not have preset positions.

Tip Tip  To change the default label positions of new front panel and block diagram objects, use the Default Label Position pull-down menus on the Front Panel and Block Diagram pages of the Options dialog box.

Complete the following steps to align a label or caption to a preset position around a front panel or block diagram object.

  1. Select a label or caption in the front panel or block diagram window. As you drag the label or caption, a blue outline indicates how the object aligns with the preset positions.
  2. Place the label or caption in the front panel or block diagram window, at the preset position you want.

You can disable the preset alignment positions temporarily by pressing the spacebar and then dragging the label or caption to the position you want.
